LETTER: Hydrocarbons and caloric consumption

If we are to act in a proper fashion we must know the larger picture of where we are in order to know which way is forward.

Re: “Aligning what we say with what we do”

In reply to Michael Jessen’s article I would first say that a switch to cleaner energies from hydrocarbons, often misnamed “fossil” fuels, is a laudable endeavour. However, if we are to act in a proper fashion we must know the larger picture of where we are in order to know which way is forward.

Our civilization, like all others before, marches on its stomach consuming calories. Presently these calories are provided almost entirely by hydrocarbons and electrical generation. The consensus seems to be under current technologies to want to shift from hydro carbons to more use of electrical calories as the way forward. Our civilization, all that has been built up, has been predicated on the expansion of caloric intake along with a corresponding expansion of the present monetary credit-debt system financing this expansion.

This has resulted in the advanced state of financial collapse the monetary system now finds itself, in effect consuming our own financial demise. To reallocate capital from the hydrocarbon energies now being consumed to electrical will require the most massive shift of re-investment humankind has ever known. Therefore, the private for-profit owners of the monetary structure and the energy corporations they own must be on side.

But who will control who or what? Do we, the citizenry of this world, really think the owners of finance and money creation will relinquish their control over everything in the march to cleaner energies? Under the guise oft heir creation, the UN International Panel on Climate Change (Maurice Strong being a Rockefeller-Rothschild globalist) and the now more than ever growing question of the science on what drives climate here on Earth as anthropogenic catastrophic climate change scientific scrutiny has brought into question what is not proven and perhaps in gross error.

Be that as it may, the owners of the lifeblood of civilization, energies and money do have an agenda, which is to maintain their position of power and control. These folks are using anthropogenic climate change to drive their agenda from the bottom up under various branding like “the livable community” incorporated in various community plans, especially in the large urban centres as just one “front” of action in their overall strategic plannings.

Yes, we need to move away from the pollution caused by hydrocarbons but we must be aware of a hidden agenda for the herding and then stampeding of people towards an end result none of us or our children will find acceptable in wishing to be free human beings.

Brad Fuller, Nelson
